I would like to know what you think of a black wedding dress? I have a cinema theme so that could work in my theme. I fall in love with this dress and I’m quite sure it won’t be so nice in an other color than black. But I’m pretty sure that my mom and sister will have an heart attack if I wear this at my wedding. But it’s true they know that I really have a different mind about the wedding than traditionnal.

I think the one in the picture is striking. I’m all for colored dresses…I think they are a great way to reflect a bolder bride’s personality.

I think the dress is beautiful! It’s not my taste, but it could definitely work for someone else’s theme

Thanks, normaly it’s really not the kind of dress I like and never imagine to wear black at my own wedding but this one appeal me. But I’m not sure it will looks so good on me since my skin is really but really white. I’m a bit scare that I look sick in black. I’ll have to try a black dress for my next friday wedding dress research.

My favorite gowns are the black white combos. So if you love it. Go for it.

No reason why you can’t wear it. It’s still bridal in style.
But, if you don’t suit black this may not be a good choice. What colours do you normally wear? If you have pale, cool-toned skin then cool pastels and jewel tones may be better choices. If you have pale, warm-toned skin then warm pastels, dusky colour, earth tones and rich warm colours may be better.
As for your mother and sister, I think if they can at least see you try on coloured dresses – maybe bridesmaids dresses at least – they might come to understand that these colours could look better on you than white.

It’s not for me, but I think it’s beautiful and can be very bridal!

All black wouldn’t be my choice, but I think the dress you posted does look bridal. It’s your day, if it fits with your theme and you love it…..that’s what is important! 🙂

Not a fan of it personally and I’d never consider it. Possibly on the right person it might work! I think she totally rocked it in the pic above!

@dirbyden: It’s a beatiful dress, and I’m all for brides wearing whatever they want. The only thing for me is that, you can wear a gorgeous black dress to any formal occasion, but when will it ever be appropriate to wear a big floofy white one? That’s the main reason I would wear white — seems like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
If you go with the black, don’t let mom & sis talk you out of it. You’ll be stunning.

Personally I wouldn’t wear black. I feel like it’s such a typical dressy staple color that a lot of your guests will probably be wearing black. Also a lot of people associate the color black with death and a wedding is supposed to celebrate life.
There are a lot of beautiful non-traditional white dresses that have black accents, like black lace or a black sash, that are super classic and cinematic. I mean hell, Audrey Hepburn arguably one of the most iconic cinematic actresses, wore a beautiful white dress with black detailing in the movie Sabrina.
If you absolutely LOVE the black dress then just go for it and be ready to defend it. If that is absolutely how you see yourself at your wedding then no one should be able to tell you otherwise! But if you’re even a little bit unsure then you might want to at least look at some of your other options, you might find a compromise that you and your family will both like. 🙂
